Fans have been saying the same thing about Liverpool without Mo Salah and Sadio Mane


Liverpool’s two main forwards are currently in the Africa Cup of Nations with Egypt and Senegal and are therefore not available for selection.

And their absence felt bad for Arsenal in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg, which ended at 0-0 at Anfield.

But with their two game-changers in the attack, Liverpool were toothless at Anfield and struggled to make any excitement ahead.

And plenty of people on social media thought Jurgen Klopp was less or less the same about his team:

Takumi Minamino, the scorer of the last-gasp equalizer against Leicester in the previous round, was approved in the next three with Roberto Firmino and Jota.

But in this case he was mostly anonymous and missed the golden opportunity of winning the late winner when the open goal presented itself.

Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale had a pretty easy night at Merseyside and only had to make a real save – to deny replacement Curtis Jones at the break.

Depending on how each player’s national team performs during the tournament in Cameroon, Liverpool could lose Salah and Mana for about a month.

The list of their upcoming fixtures isn’t too terrible but it’s clear that their level drops tremendously when they can’t call the pair.

Liverpool host Brentford in Sunday’s Premier League, before they travel to the Emirates for the second leg next week.

He will then play Crystal Palace away, as well as Cardiff in the FA Cup fourth round on 6 February.
